Super Bowl fans were surprised last night when Netflix and J.J. Abrams decided to release the latest installment of Cloverfield. ‘Paradox’. The new addition to the Cloverfield franchise stars Daniel Brühl, Elizabeth Debicki, Aksel Hennie, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Chris O’Dowd, John Ortiz, David Oyelowo, and Zhang Ziyi.
Under distribution by Paramount Pictures, the film had been in development since 2012, and initially had been named God Particle at that time, without being connected to the Cloverfield series. Since then, the film was confirmed to be the third film of the series, but its release had been postponed repeatedly, until its surprise trailer during Super Bowl LII on February 4, 2018, with its release on Netflix occurring the same day, immediately after the game, within two hours of the first trailer
